Packers' Daniels promises to go 'full speed' if selected to Pro Bowl

Add Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels to the list of fans who are fed up with the lack of tenacity at the Pro Bowl. The NFL's annual all-star game has more momentum-stopping hugs than bone-crushing hits, as the line between tackle and two-hand touch has been blurred.

Daniels said he'll go "full speed" in next year's Pro Bowl, if selected.

Via Daniels' verified Twitter account:

Daniels played well enough in 2015 to make the Pro Bowl, but he lacked the name recognition to garner enough of the fan vote. The former fourth-round draft pick had a career-high 49 tackles (27 solo, seven for losses), as well as four sacks, a forced fumble and an interception.

After signing a four-year, $42 million contract extension in December, Daniels is now one of the highest-paid 3-4 defensive ends in the league. No longer under the radar, he should be a prime candidate for next year's Pro Bowl.
